- Tissington railway station
Tissington railway station was opened in
1899near to Tissingtongbmapping|SK176522 a village in Derbyshirenear Ashbourne.
It was on the
Ashbourne Linebuilt by the LNWRas a branch from the Cromford and High Peak Railway(which ran from Whaley Bridgeto Cromford) at Parsley Hay
In common with the other stations on this line, the buildings were of timber, although the platforms were of conventional construction. From Parsley Hay to Ashbourne the line was single with passing loops at the stations, though provision was made for doubling which never occurred. A hazard for enginemen was that it was built on a gradient of 1 in 60.
Regular passenger services ended in
1954, though excusions continued until 1963, pasrticularly for the annual Well dressing. Freight continued until October of that year, the track to Ashbourne finally being lifted in 1964
The track bed from Ashbourne to Parsley Hay was acquired by
Derbyshire County Counciland the Peak National Parkin 1968for a cycle and walking route. This, the Tissington Trailwas one of the first of such ventures in the country. Later, Ashbourne Tunnel was acquired by Sustrans.
